Stop Dog Fighters From Owning More Dogs

Target: Larry Harrah, Fayette County Prosecutor

Goal: Seek a lifetime ban from owning animals and the maximum possible punishment for animal cruelty convict who reportedly had multiple pit bulls with injuries consistent with forced animal fighting.

Over a dozen pit bull dogs were reportedly rescued from a man who has a prior conviction of animal cruelty. After receiving animal cruelty reports, officers searched the home of 36-year-old William Kincaid and found a total of 14 pit bulls, four of them were still puppies. One of the dogs had been hidden in a garage, police say. Among the items found in Kincaid’s possession, according to police, included a “breaking stick” with fresh blood on it, as well as other items commonly found in dog fighting training.

The dogs were taken to a veterinarian who confirmed that the injuries on their bodies were consistent with forced animal fighting. Kincaid was convicted of animal cruelty for fighting dogs in 2012, and he was banned from owning animals, then was convicted just last year of illegal ownership. He has already been allowed to get out on bail. It seems the authorities aren’t taking animal cruelty seriously or else this repeat offender would’ve never been allowed to keep harming animals. Kincaid was charged with multiple counts of animal cruelty, illegal possession of dogs, and failure to register a dog or kennel. Please add your signature to the petition below demanding that the authorities take charge once and for all and stop allowing this repeat offender to hurt innocent animals.


Dear Mr. Harrah,

Over a dozen pit bulls, including puppies, were reportedly found in the home of a man with a prior conviction of animal cruelty. According to the veterinarian who treated them, the animals had injuries that were consistent with forced animal fighting. William Kincaid had been convicted of animal cruelty back in 2012, and just last year he was convicted of going against the law again by illegally owning animals.

We, the undersigned, are calling on you to put a stop to this sick cruelty once and for all. Please see to it that this man is never allowed to harm any more innocent animals by seeking the maximum punishment and a lifetime ban from owning animals.

  1. Wait a minute. It says this man acquired more dogs *illegally* and that he was already banned from owning animals. The petition text says in part: “and he was banned from owning animals, then was convicted just last year of illegal ownership.” So how is that the fault of the authorities? The man broke the law and chose to do so. He may have gotten the dogs from an underworld acquaintance, not a legitimate source like a shelter. To me, this is like blaming the cops for a drug dealer being able to get his hands on a shipment of cocaine. Incarceration works, but if there’s a ban already in place and this schmuck wants to keep breaking it, then throwing a ban on top of another ban won’t work. There must be another way to address this.

    This man doesn’t deserve to live!!!!!!! if he is this cruel to innocent animals I’m sure he is cruel to humans
    as well.

    Something needs to be done to people who treats innocent animals this way. I would like to tie his hands behind his back and throw him in a fighting ring with about 25 big hungry mean dogs and tear him to pieces!!!!!!!

    Do something to these sick people!!!

    This kind of monster deserves the electric chair. No, it is too kind for what he did. How can all countries let this kind of sociopaths be free and continue to torture and kill sensitive creatures ? Animals are more “humane” than these monsters.
    Governments aren’t taken things seriously if it is not a human who is injured, I don’t understand the world we are living in 🙁

    5 years community service in animal welfare AFTER completing a hard labor prison term. This is a travisty to civilized worlds. Are we 3rd world, I think not. Stop, look, listen act, punish this man please.

    Throw the sick low life in prison and let the coward rot away.
